Graduation 6YL

This week we said our congratulations and farewells to our graduating 6YL students in two ceremonies. His Excellency the British Ambassador, Mr. Ian Duddy, Mrs. Karen Schandy and the Board Members, Mr. Mark Rosevear and the teaching staff, as well as the parents and families, gathered together to celebrate, as Master of Ceremonies, Mr. Agustin Maggi, introduced the proceedings.

There were speeches from the Head Boys and Head Girls, who reflected on the students' time in the School, their friendship for each other and their understanding of the gratitude they have to the School and to their families. The students received their leaving certificates, and a group of them sang beautifully in the middle of the ceremony.

Mrs. Schandy finished proceedings, speaking of the history of the importance of the core values of the School, how people make a school, and how the graduating students now, as former members, take their place in our alumni community.

We wish every one of the leaving students all our best wishes for the future.

Mark Rosevear - Principal

Group 4 - Forensic Science

The Group 4 Project was held in School on Monday, 19th November. This is an interdisciplinary activity in which all Diploma Programme Science students must participate by analysing a common topic or problem.

The chosen topic for this year was Forensic Science which allowed students to be engaged in their investigation and carry out a range of experiments on different aspects of this area of knowledge.

The outcome was a successful collaborative experience that ended in a “Science fair style” presentation that several groups from Junior and Senior attended and enjoyed.

Liga Universitaria - Bronze Cup Winners

The U16 Football team is the youngest category to play in the Liga Universitaria Tournament.  For the second time in a row, The British Schools U16s won the Bronze Cup.  It is relevant to mention that they play against clubs where recruitment and training of players is very different from that of a school.  

We congratulate all players for their commitment, repeatedly shown each Sunday at the matches.
